For the sixth consecutive year, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga will present a benefit production of Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues on Thursday, February 13 at 7 p.m., Friday, February 14, at 7 p.m., and Saturday, February 15, at 2 p.m. at the University Center Auditorium.

Hailed by The New York Times as “funny” and “poignant” and by the Daily News as “intelligent” and “courageous,” The Vagina Monologues, which was first performed off-Broadway by Eve Ensler, dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences.

Ensler has performed the play to great acclaim throughout the world – from Zagreb to Santa Barbara, from London to Seattle, from Jerusalem to Oklahoma City.  Villard Books/Random House first published The Vagina Monologues, which includes a foreword by Gloria Steinem, in February 1998.  A special edition was released in hard cover and paperback in February 2008 in honor of V-Day’s ten-year anniversary.

Tickets are $5 for students (with ID) and $10 for general admission.  Tickets may be purchased in the University Center lobby on February 11-12, by contacting the Women’s Center  (423-425-5605) or at the door.

This production is sponsored by the UTC Women’s Action Council and Women’s Center with proceeds benefiting the Partnership for Families, Children and Adults and the UTC Transformation Project.
